[accordion-item title=”Major Interests“]My hobbies are my professions. I do what I enjoy and enjoy what I do. I take all the things I do equally seriously and find them equally enjoyable. However, for scheduling purposes, I shifted my main concentration along the way, which now seem to remain, for the rest of my life, on metaheuristic algorithms and computational science.

Research Interests

  • Optimization and Metaheuristics
  • Soft Computing Methods
  • High Performance Computing
  • Neural Computing
  • Parallel Computation
  • Computational Solid Mechanics
  • CAD/CAE Problems
  • Cold Roll Forming Process

Sport Interests

My major field in sport is Track & Field in 100 and 200 meters. I was the first and second places at university competitions in 200 meters in 2011 and 2012, respectively. However, I have done many other sports such as soccer, martial arts, badminton, and so forth. Furthermore, I am interested in the scientific aspects of sports. In general, I enjoy practicing and learning all types of sports and outdoor activities.
